Which approach to welfare is best?

In Australia, Centrelink have been criticised for the slow processing of applications during the pandemic and even accused on intentionally delaying valid claims. There was also the robodebt scandal, when people living in poverty were ordered to pay back money they were justly entitled to. This led to many unfortunate suicides. 

In the UK, the government is actively advertising welfare and encouraging more people to apply. They want as many people as possible to get on Universal Credit. The advertising obviously isn’t aimed at full-time bludgers. Like you Aussies, they know all the loopholes and how to exploit the system. It is mainly aimed at the working poor. There are people working in the UK living in relative poverty, which is unacceptable. Universal Credit is mainly for them.

     To best honest I believe welfare should be a job not money, a bit like the fascist model.
